Millwick Wedding: Lani & Rick
Ahhhh the Millwick. Without a doubt, it's one of my favorite wedding venues in downtown Los Angeles. I mean, who doesn’t love a beautifully curated urban jungle in an industrial style warehouse in the middle of DTLA?! If your dream is to get married amongst a bunch of plants and you’re into cute, unexpected details (hello gorgeous gold wall!), this is definitely your wedding venue. PLUS it gets gorgeous light for photos, and it's close to a bunch of really cool murals in the Arts District for even more photo opts. Was I in photographic heaven? Yes. Did I scout the Arts District prior to this wedding in hopes of finding a rooftop with skyline views of the Los Angeles? Yes. Did I take these newly weds up on said rooftop for some sunset romantics, and thus simultaneously almost retire my career as a Los Angeles wedding photographer because, let’s be real, DOES IT GET BETTER THAN THAT? YES. YES I DID. Just a FYI, I opted not to retire from wedding photography because I still need to photograph at the Millwick’s sister venues Valentine, Grass Room, and the Smog Shoppe!
Los Angeles Athletic Club Wedding: Samantha & Jon
If you want to dance on a rooftop in the middle of downtown Los Angeles on your wedding day, the Los Angeles Athletic Club is the place for you. It's right in the middle of it all, and its rooftop views will definitely make you fall in love with LA (or in my case, all over again). Samantha & Jon selected this venue because, and I quote, "We thought it would be cool to get married on rooftop in downtown LA." Yup. I totally agreed! Double bonus: The AC in this venue was super clutch... It was so hot that day! Their wedding was fun AND elegant, with lots of dancing and stylish details. Enjoy!
